Digital Archive

We are also still working on our online digital archive, which is at the Northern Virginia Digital Archive.  We have succeeded in getting it up and running--that was an effort in itself--and are now trying to figure how to work it into our history courses.

Digital Newspaper project

Finished up my digital newspaper assignment that I will be using in future history courses.
The assignment is based on fragments of my hometown newspaper from 1907.  It is a good example of how historians are usually trying to interpret fragmentary evidence from the past.  I had two students try it out this semester with good results.
